About River Crossing B&B and SC

River Crossing is set on 100 acres of land with magnificent, panoramic views of the lush farmlands of the Champagne Valley, Cathkin Peak and Champagne Castle.

We have four villas with stylish, luxurious and romantic décor. Three villas have four bedrooms each and one has two bedrooms, totaling 14 bedrooms; all bedrooms are en-suite. In two of the bedrooms, the bath or shower in the actual bedroom. The villas can be rented as a whole, some as individual rooms and some as one, two bedroom suites; each suite has its own open-plan lounge, dining area and kitchenette.

                  Units were neat and well kitted. Really got more than I expected. Certainly a place worth returning to.

                  The unit was lovely and clean. Was welcomed by Michelle and her advise and info on places to visit was very helpful. The mountain view from the unit and bedrooms was stunning. Would have been nice the optional breakfast advertised was offered..Just an ant issue in the kitchen. Could not leave open foods or anything sweet. Would have been nice if indian channels eg Glow was an option to watch. We did have a lovely stay and would go again.
